At this year's Aspen Ideas Festival, we asked a group of tech experts what crazy inventions we can expect in the future. "I actually think that we will develop some kind of technology that allows us to just communicate directly through thought," says interactive artist Jonathan Harris. Other panelists include Sebastian Thrun, Alex Reben, Missy Cummings, Alexis Madrigal, Ping Fu, Danny Hillis, and Hari Kondabolu.

The Big Question is a series inspired by The Atlantic's back-page feature.
